About Me

  • Recently I've relocated myself to a Japanese village near the UNESCO World Heritage, Kumano Kodo after 21 years of living in the UK.

    My lessons are fun and focused on your needs! I enjoy sharing my learning experiences of English and Spanish with my students.

    Also, I ‘d love to share my passion for the culture, especially my interests in Japanese cuisine, martial arts and hiking in Japan.

    If you visit Japan, I am happy to guide you all over Japan with my experiences and knowledge’.


Hariki-sensei’s classes are really useful, and I also learn many things about culture and food.
Thank you so very much for running the course Hariki-sensei! Going through the grammar has given me a good foundation and highlighted to me exactly where to focus on my grammar. And it was so lovely to get an opportunity to speak a little more and listen to a different person speaking Japanese.
I enjoy Hariki-sensei’s lessons including the karaoke sessions.
